    Guys, this number is definately a commonwealth bank number.
    I recently recieved a text message telling me my personal loan had been processed and I would recieve my funds shortly. At first I thought it was suspicious coming from a mobile number, however I checked my netbank and I also had am email from the bank saying the same thing.
    However if you recieve any texts from the bank when your not expecting it then I would definately call them to make sure someone hasn't got a hold of your banking details or anything like that

    I received an sms notification from 0488 728 596 that my credit card payment was due, AVG reported it as suspicious but according to commbank https://www.commbank.com.au/support/faqs/959.html?ei=gsa_support_sms-from-commbank that is the number a legitimate message will be sent from.

    Don't take any notice of this number, if you try calling it, a recorded message will say " the number you have call has been disconnected". Clearly it's a scam

    It's a scam. They say they're from the Commonwealth bank. They wanted my tax file number "and other details".

    Is alert number from Commbank. I had one that "my phonenumber was removed from my account, etc" whilst I didn't change my account.

    What seems to happen is that someone typed the wrong phone number (read mine) on their account, and changed it to their correct one. Because my number was there initially, I do get this alert message.

    So people without a commbank account could get this message too.

    I have also received a message from this number it appears to be a CBA number as the text had the correct CBA contact number 132221 that matches the secure CBA https webpage, I phoned to confirmed all correct just to be sure. it appears commonwealth bank may be accidentally sending these messages out, I was concerned as i have just come back from overseas so made sure. I always check numbers anyway to make sure they are legitimate, I don't know about the other comments made about it being a hoax.. all scams will give you a link or number to call,, the bank will only give you there general enquiry number, it is always better to double check with the bank direct or use their https webpage, thanks CBA for making us panic for nothing.
